Then there were two...almost!

Then there were two...almost!

If the comments from Trevor Birch in The News today are correct Pompey are closing in on reducing the senior number to just two!

Somewhat surprisingly perhaps Dave Kitson does not look like he will be the one to turn out the light, as he is not going to be the last senior player to move on...

'Talking and talking sensible' has been taken place with the club and his agent with a deal to terminate his contract, with it said that we should 'view the current situation with Dave Kitson as good news.'

Perhaps, even if it seems like it will be the case, Kitson will not be the next to go but Birch feels confident enough to say that he will not be the last: 'I can say it certainly won't be Dave Kitson who will be the last man.'

I will not be at all disappointed to see Kitson leave, not in the least, but if he can agree a compromise deal - a sensible one at that - to walk away from the club without another one lined up then I must say hats off to the guy!

As for the other two seniors contracted to the club The News claims that Tal Ben Haim has: 'held conversations with prospective owners, Portpin's Balram Chainrai and Levi Kushnir, in an attempt to resolve his personal situation...'

Liam Lawrence, well apparently interest in him remains but who this is isn't know, but former loanee club Cardiff are 'monitoring the situation' with it hoped a deal with whatever club can be 'thrashed out this week'.

It can only mean that Ben Haim will be the fat light controller

Quite agree, Rug. Kitson will get another job but, this time, it will depend on wages and talent, neither of which we got right. We seemed to assume he had talent and paid him (almost) the earth. Now, he'll have to prove he's worth employing and worth paying so if he plays like he did with us The Wright's Coal Tar Soap League beckons and he'll be playing Romford & Corfe Academicals.

Although cant say that he or Kanu have done anything to earn image rights - still think most of this issue rests with SG who signed of their package deal

Good. He's not the cause but he is the problem. In real life this is what happens. If we survive but he fails to leave, he plays all season, we give him stick all season. See how professional he is then. Anyone remember the 'Michael Miles, Take Your Pick' thing we used to do at half time? In retrospect we should have seen this scenario coming and written into the contract a pitch entertainment where the high earners all pick a number on the boxes; in one of the boxes is DOUBLE the amount they are owed, in the others, bu&&er all. That would be entertainment - much better that, 'Can You Hit The Crossbar from Forty Yards'. Btw, I don't get out much!

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
